Qur’anic Arabic translation activity

Bismillah,

One of the goals of Al Barakah Arabic department is to help students with the ability to translate the surahs found in Juzz `Amma by themselves. This is done through the teaching of keywords/vocabulary found in the surah and simple grammar points that can be found within a specific surah. The children also learn the Tafsir – themes and context of the Surah. I think it’s a great way for non-native Arabic speaking children to connect with the Qur’an and the curriculum is fantastic! (Not because I designed the advance Arabic textbooks but because the organisers are so passionate that only Qur’anic Arabic is taught – any other kind of Arabic can be learnt any where else).

So here is a translation worksheet  I’ve designed to informally test how much of the previously learnt keywords they have retained and to pass along the translation techniques I myself picked up at Oxford.

Arabic Vocab Board game

Bismillah,

After 4 years of learning Arabic, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt it would be the importance of constantly reviewing vocabulary. Teaching yrs 8-10 means the age range for them is 13-16. Teenagers! So I had to find a way of helping them to review all the vocabulary for the surahs they have learnt so far at Al Barakah. The solution: Arabic monopoly game.

board game

I use simple file folders that can be found at any major store. The monopoly boardgame pdf only has the options of “vocab” [both eng-arab/arab[eng] and Q-cards which have questions that test them on the tafsir of the surahs they learnt in previous years.

All the  question cards  are relevant to the al Barakah Arabic syllabus. I glued the cards to coloured card and cut around them to give a nice border. I store these game cards in a Ziploc bag for safe keeping.

The monopoly-ish looking board game will be played by one team for 15 minutes, while the other teams work on another activity. The girls will then rotate. The board game printable can be used as your class requires.
